Fashion on The Corner- Have a Sheer Moment a la Kelly Roland
Hey honeybuns. Let’s jump right into this. Has everyone seen this photo of Kelly Roland? She looks absolutely amazing. I can’t wait until this weather breaks so I can have a chic sheer moment. No bras allowed, probably just nude nipple covers. I’m in the itty bitty titty committee. We can get away with no bras. But that’s another conversation.
Will you ladies dare to have a sheer moment? I know I def will. And “I like my kisses down low, make me arch my back.” In case you were wondering. Lol, until next post.
Fashion and Beauty Met Natural Hair- Eden BodyWorks’ Style With Eden Event
When I think about Eden BodyWorks, I can hear Biggie Smalls singing “and another one” as in another fab event. About a year ago, Eden BodyWorks launched its new Jojoba Monoi line with a Brunch with Eden series. This year, Eden BodyWorks kicked off its Style with Eden series to announce its new Coconut Oil and Shea Butter infused products at Pranna in NYC.
The event was attended by NYC’s stylistas and natural hair lovers. Bloggers, beauty, fashion and media mavens mingled and gagged over each others hair and accessories while enjoying delicious bites and cocktails. There was also an informational panel in true Eden fashion (always educating on the importance of natural, healthy, beauty practices) that included Felicia Leatherwood, Natural Hair Stylist and Founder of Loving Your Hair with Natural Care, Kela Walker, Style Contributor to Black Enterprise and Founder of Kela’s Kloset, Latisha Daring, Owner and Designer of Asytyn LLC, and Milly Almodovar, Beauty Editor for Cosmo Latina and Founder of Beauty Logic Blog.
The event took place on the first day of Spring but the weather didn’t get the memo. Because it was so cold out, I opted for my trusty black wrap dress, black and gold Cesare Pacoitti boots, bright necklace and a bright lip. I tried to throw spring in there with the lip and necklace although it was clearly winter outside. (rolls eyes extra hard)
Overall, the night was amazing as everyone networked and connected. Click through the pics to see how everything shaped up. As soon as I try the new Coconut Shea products I will do a review. There were new additions like curly puddings in soft and medium hold as well as a co wash, leave in conditioner, and shampoo. The products are slated to hit Walmart stores in the beginning of April.
Check out Eden BodyWorks’ facebook page to see when Style with Eden will hit a city near you. Attending one of their events is so worth it. Until next time lovelies.

Fashion on The Corner- Easing Into Spring
So a few weeks ago the ground hog came out of the hole and said there will be an early spring. I guess that’s what happened. I really don’t understand the whole groundhog situation but anything that even hints at this winter being over is alright in my book. So since spring or spring like weather will arrive in about four weeks, I say we welcome it by incorporating a few bright pieces to our looks.
In September, the spring/summer 2013 runway shows had large amounts of eye popping color. Everything from light pastel hues to bold neons floated down the catwalk. While the temps are still frigid here in NYC one might not feel the need to add color to their everyday wear. I suggest starting small and easing into springish outfits.
The collage above shows a few pieces I think would be perfect to rock now before flowers start to bloom and temps reach the 60s and 70s. Try adding color with a pair of earrings, a new nail polish, a cocktail ring, stackable bangles or place a bright short skirt over your opague tights. Either way you go, you’ll look great and at the very least brighten the mood in the office.
Let me know how you all are preparing for spring. I know I can’t wait.
Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift- Adorn New York Statement Pieces
So I know tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and some of you may still need a gift idea. Don’t fret, I’ve got you covered. For the fashionista in your life look no further than Adorn New York’s Denim Star necklace (shown in the first pic). It’s just the piece to add that extra something to any outfit. It can be dressed up or down. I would love to wear it over a button down shirt. Hmmm outfit idea light bulb just went off.
If that seems like too much, then grab a few Eternity Bracelets and pair it with a couple Lucky Charms (both shown in second pic). They can be worn alone or stacked up the arm. Either way you can’t go wrong.
You can let your love adorn your loved one literally. lol, cheesy I know but it so fit the moment. Get your pieces at Chouchounette women’s boutique in Brooklyn located at 275 Flatbush Ave. I promise that special person in your life will love these specialty pieces. To view more of the collection check out www.adornnewyork.com.
Happy Loving People.
PS- There’s a trunk show for the upcoming Adorn New York line on Feb. 23 from 2-5pm at the same boutique listed above. I know, I know, you’re welcome.
